Are there any reputable LED lights that are NOT Blurple?

I would like to swap my 1000w HPS for a comparable LED.

I totally hate blurple lights. I bought 2 LEDs so far. A Mars and something else. I hate them. The plants look like crap. I like green plants, not purple. LOL The blurple light bothers my eyes if I'm in the room for long. I spent 25 buxs on those stupid glasses and they suck.

I built my own light from some COBs and I love the color (91 CRI) but I am not real comfortable running something I built as many hours as I run my lights. I would rather have a reputable company who builds these LED lights and knows what they are doing.

With that said, anyone aware of a nice LED light that meets my needs?

When searching, I'm not sure what to look for. CRI ratings are not often listed for grow lights.

I would like to keep the cost reasonable. Not cheapo, but reasonable.

Thanks

My old keeper Chemdog. I was hitting 2.5-3 pounds with 4 rounds per year under 500 watts in a 5' x '5 x 7' tent.

Thanks very much guys. I am checking into them. I am getting ready to do a room remodel after the next crop so this info is good.


Thanks again

Fluence Bioengineering. High-end shit. About 3x the cost of home-made COBs. All passively cooled, so no fans to consume electricity, make noise and break.

Fluence VyperX+ is only $1.70 per watt for a 525 watt light ($900), that's not 3x the cost of home-made COBs which I believe are around $1.20 per watt.

I've got a full-spectrum P.L. Light Hortiled Top and it's an outstanding white LED light, a little pricier than Fluence.

btw you should always wear eye protection with colored (blurple) LED fixtures and really the same is true for the white ones.

He has them on Amazon now. It's pure white light and the price is right. I have tried several as well and these are favorites. The cobs are great but with these on boards it spreads the light a little nicer. I like the 100 watts covering 2x2.
